Tame your health-conscious guests’ craving for wild game with Gold Canyon Meat Co. Premium Bison. Raised on the open range by family ranchers who adhere to strict ethical treatment guidelines, this lean protein is naturally tender, rich in beefy flavor, and will add a taste of adventure to your unique menu.


Gold Canyon Premium Bison is raised by independent rancher-owners with over two decades of experience. Our ranchers raise livestock humanely – with no added stimulants, growth hormones or antibiotics. These strict protocols result in clean, satisfying flavor in every cut, every time.


Our superior bison meat is air-chilled to ensure brightness in color and fresh, full flavor. Plus, it’s Traceability Source Verified, and our facility is certified Safe Quality Foods (SQF) from harvest through processing.


Gold Canyon Premium Bison is high in protein and has more iron and less fat, cholesterol, and calories than other popular meats. It is more tender than beef with about half the calories, so it is a smart alternative for flexitarians looking for novel protein options.


For over 50 years, Gold Canyon’s trained meat cutters have hand-crafted custom cuts of the highest quality proteins, helping to set our customers and their dishes apart from the competition. As the popularity of bison grows, finding the right cut for your menu is a top priority. Our wide variety of premium bison cuts, from bison brisket to burgers, are ready to add versatility to your menu.
